We are overwhelmed with the love and support, thank you all so much! Its been really tough reaching out for help, its kind of a flaw of mine, but with everyone reaching out I feel so much better. A few people have asked what happened so ill be a little more specific about the situation. On May 15 my wife suffered a stroke and was rushed to northern westchester. They were able to unclot the block that was on the right side of the brain. 2 days later the same spot clotted and they could not do anything about it unfortunately. So severe damage happened to the brain. She ended up being paralyzed on the left side of her body. Her brain was swelling so much they had to perform a craniotomy where they remove a big part of the skull so the brain can swell out. She now has a decompression on the right side of her brain and wears a helmet to protect that area. Since she was so young doctors were puzzled on how this happened, but long story short, she had Stage 2b Ovarian Cancer. So she is currently undergoing chemo treatments at phelps memorial hospital every tuesday and attending Burke Rehab in somers and they have been doing an amazing job. We are starting to see some progress. But obviously its been a tough situation for our family, our son was effected early on as mommy was in the hospital for more than 2 months. I've been maintaining my job by WFH and am currently her caretaker thing have been crazy. Like I mentioned before we are holding our son home until she finishes her chemo, i do finally have help during the week 2/3 days to watch my son while I do work and take her to all her appointments. They outreach has been amazing so thank you all for your help and support. Because of this he will have so many toys to occupy him and I was able to sign up for that meals on wheels i think it was so now my wife and son wont need to eat my terrible cooking all week long! And a lot of you donated to her gofundmepage, We are so touched and cant thank you enough! Looking forward to the day that I will be able to pay it forward. Thank you all again!
